Just when I thought I had seen it all…this post is from CNN. Would you really want all this technology sitting on your head?

The Japanese electronics company (Sony)  has filed a U.S. patent for a “SmartWig,” which will use sensors to detect everything from blood pressure to brain waves.

The wearable wig could also be used in a number of practical ways, such as helping blind people navigate without any extra assistance, said Sony in its filing.

It could also come in handy for the gaming industry especially for virtual reality fans, and could be hooked up to Wi-Fi Bluetooth and radio transceivers, according to the patent application.
